Scaling clones without intersection

Recommended Posts

Been working at this for a while and can't figure out a solution. I have a cloned set of stacked rings and I want them to scale from their bottommost point and remain at the top of the previous ring. Is there a procedural way of doing this? As you see in the file each ring overlaps more and more with the one below it. I don't want any intersection but instead have each one perfectly stacked on the one before it while increasing in scale. Any ideas without using complex xpresso?

Hi,

Take a look at this post. It uses Python, but I suppose it can be incorporated in your example easy enough.

I've almost solved it - but had to make the obj editable, hence the zip
